Global Heritage Fund’s mission is to protect, preserve, and sustain the most significant and endangered cultural heritage sites in the developing world. Since its founding, GHF, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has focused its efforts in developing countries and regions on preservation and responsible development of the most important and endangered global heritage sites.
Global Heritage Fund has supported emergency stabilization and a sustained conservation and training program to save the last remaining temples of Wat Phu in Champasak, Laos. The site is highly endangered and located in one of the poorest regions of southern Laos. It has great long-term potential for international and domestic tourism and community development.
GHF’s program at Cyrene, Libyra, is the first integrated project involving Libyans, Italians, and Americans working together and aims to implement the conservation work within a structured training program for site conservators, archaeologists, and site maintenance and park services personnel of the Libyan Department of Antiquities in Cyrenaica.
